I want to express appreciation for the opportunity provided to us by genU to participate in this course.
Jem has provided me with useful strategies that encourage a mindful approach to everything I do.
He has provided me with the tools to consider different perspectives, recognise what is within control and accept what is not.
Today I received feedback from a senior staff member about my calm and holistic approach to situations presented before us.
This was great to hear. The Resilience course is making a difference – it pays to pause, to reflect and be mindful.
Jem THANK YOU!
I hope to continue referring back to Jem’s course, his words of advice and keep my learnings on the forefront when making decisions, when catching up with staff, when needing to do performance management…in everything I do at work, in all of my interactions.
The first focus was for managers to understand themselves and their management style and then to build a successful team charter which can be enduring.
All of these outcomes have been achieved through Jem’s successful leadership, guidance, knowledge and mentoring.
Team members are more aware, team understanding has grown and generally team spirit has improved.
I would support other managers in having a conversation with Jem to use his skills to help yourself or your teams.

“Jem is an inspirational leader who has helped push and develop my team to be better versions of themselves. His life experience and vulnerability he shares through his story telling is raw and honest and provides the chance to reflect on how we can make changes in our own lives for the better. He is able to tailor his teaching methods to a wide variety of audiences and my team and I have been lucky enough to see Jem deliver both powerful key note speeches and interactive workshops, both of which are sure to get you and your team thinking! Anyone lucky enough to spend time working with Jem will come out with a different perspective and outlook on life no matter what stage they may be at.”

Our business has worked with Jem in two capacities, firstly with our smaller leadership team and then secondly with our entire business. Jem has been dynamic in his approach to working with us at every level. Jem’s approach brings an instant calmness to the room, as well as an intense engagement between the group and facilitator. Jem creates a very comfortable environment to learn, discuss, ponder on some challenging and sometimes confronting issues that many of us don’t take the time to reflect upon.
Our team has thrived as a result of these sessions.
I couldn’t recommend working with Jem more highly. It has been such a pleasure working with him both personally and seeing the team’s response to his sessions.
